I am doing a review of the new movie, Wolverine. I knew some of the world of the X-Men, thanks to my son being a big fan and getting the comics. Every mother should always check what their kids are reading, which I read the comics too.
Though maybe the movie wasn't on par with Iron Man or Batman movie last summer, I did enjoyed it. It was nice to see Gambit and Sabretooth. Plus seeing quick update from when Logan was a young child up to modern times before he became an X-Man. If you're going to see it for Academy Award worthiness, it's not that, but if to enjoy it for what it is, an extension of the comics, then do so.
